Welcome to Mulberry School
The Mulberry School is an independent, private, non-profit school that provides children with the opportunity to learn in an environment that values curiosity and natural development. We work to "nurture the innate love of learning" by teaching children how, as opposed to what, to learn.
Serving the Bloomington-Normal community since 1971, Mulberry School is a cooperative institution where parents have the opportunity to participate in nearly every aspect of the school. It is this support and input that allows us to provide a unique learning experience for our students.

Families interested in learning more about Mulberry are invited to tour school, meet the teachers, and talk with current parents about why they chose Mulberry School.

Calling 2-year-old* and young 3-year-old students who want to experience a fun start to school! Early Explorers currently has openings for the 2017-2018 school year. Early Explorers meets from 9-11am on Thursdays and Fridays. Your child can attend on Thursday only, Friday only, or both days.
Children will be engaged in story time, music and movement, sensory and discovery, small group learning, social and language learning experiences including center time, snack, and recess.
Students who are still 2 years old will need to have a parent on the Mulberry School premises during class time until his/her 3rd birthday. Parents volunteer in the classroom 1-2 times a month using sign-up sheets. No other parent hours required for this class.
*To be eligible for this class, children must have turned 2 before September 1, 2017.
Ms. Zarina’s first graders took a leaf walk to gather specimens, which they then measured using cubes and sorted by attributes (green/not green, spiky/rounded, etc.).
Ms. Teresa’s Kindergarten class loves working cooperatively!
Ms. Brandi and Ms. Colette’s pre-K classes definitely enjoy their playground time.
